A breezy Fitzrovia café serving up Hawaiian-style raw fish bowls.
With its cool blue interior, walls adorned with surfboards and dishes named ‘Heatwave’ and ‘Venice,’ Ahi Poké is about as close as you’ll get to a dip in the Pacific on your lunchbreak. It’s actually round the back of Tottenham Court Road – hardly Hawaii, but a pleasant enough part of Fitzrovia for dining alfresco on pavement tables.
An eager team of staff make poké (Hawaiian bowls of sashimi fish with rice and veg, in case the trend has passed you by) to order from an open bar filled with fresh, vibrant ingredients. You can choose straight off the menu or walk on the wild side with a build-your-own combination on a base of rice, quinoa or kale (or all three mixed together). Chunks of chilled raw tuna were paired nicely with radishes in my ‘Oahu’ bowl, even if the raw onion had me reaching for the mints afterwards.
Those of you who eat with your eyes won’t be able to resist the DIY mix of pretty elements – get the zingy leche de tigre sauce and splash an extra 50p on cashew nuts for added crunch. Change from a tenner is unlikely, but if you go for the more substantial bases, you’ll feel satisfied rather than short-changed. It may not weather the winter months but Ahi Poké gets refreshing summer food spot on.

Simply delicious and healthy food in a trendy and clean environment with friendly, fast and knowledgable staff. Absolutely must go if you're around Oxford Street / Tottenham Court Road!
Heard they were doing a soft launch, so went to try it out as I miss Poké from the States! Decor is very clean, doesn't look like takeway, which is a good thing i guess. Made my own Poké with Salmon and a good selection of toppings. Had the sweet sauce which was delicious. Definitely recommended for a healthy lunch in the area
